Band­ing to­gether against can­cer

The Oban Times - - News -

PEO­PLE are be­ing asked to get a unity band to show sup­port for can­cer char­i­ties on World Can­cer Day.

Four char­i­ties have unity bands in their own colours – An­thony Nolan has a black band, Breast Can­cer Care, a pink band, Can­cer Re­search, blue and white, and the Movem­ber Foun­da­tion, a blue and yel­low band.

The wrist­bands have two parts knot­ted to­gether to show the strength of unity and are avail­able at the world can­cer day web­site for a sug­gested do­na­tion of £2.

Col­lec­tively the four char­i­ties sup­port mil­lions of peo­ple deal­ing with a wide range of can­cers and the money will go to­wards the in­di­vid­ual projects.

Lisa Adams, Can­cer Re­search UK spokes­woman in Scot­land, said: ‘So many of us have been af­fected by the dis­ease, which is why on Fe­bru­ary 4 we are call­ing on Scots to join to­gether and wear a unity band with pride. We’re part­ner­ing with Breast Can­cer Care, An­thony Nolan and the Movem­ber Foun­da­tion to pro­mote World Can­cer Day this year. By work­ing to­gether we can make a big­ger im­pact.’

Tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ters Ant and

Dec are back­ing the event.
